Practical Petroleum Geochemistry for Exploration and Productionprovides readers with a single reference that addresses the principle concepts and applications of petroleum geochemistry used in finding, evaluating, and producing petroleum deposits. Today, there are few reference books available on how petroleum geochemistry is applied in exploration and production written specifically for geologists, geophysicists, and petroleum engineers.

This book fills that void and is based on training courses that the author has developed over his 37-year career in hydrocarbon exploration and production. Specific topical features include the origin of petroleum, deposition of source rock, hydrocarbon generation, and oil and gas migrations that lead to petroleum accumulations.

Also included are descriptions on how these concepts are applied to source rock evaluation, oil-to-oil, and oil-to-source rock correlations, and ways of interpreting natural gas data in exploration work. Finally, a thorough description on the ways petroleum geochemistry can assist in development and production work, including reservoir continuity, production allocation, and EOR monitoring is presented.

Authored by an expert in petroleum geochemistry, this book is the ideal reference for any geoscientist looking for exploration and production content based on extensive field-based research and expertise.

  • Emphasizes the practical application of geochemistry in solving exploration and production problems
  • Features more than 200 illustrations, tables, and diagrams to underscore key concepts
  • Authored by an expert geochemist that has nearly 40 years of experience in field-based research, applications, and instruction
  • Serves as a refresher reference for geochemistry specialists and non-specialists alike
Harry Dembicki, Jr., PhD, is a retired petroleum geochemistry whose career in the corporate O&G industry spanned nearly 40 years. Dr. Dembicki's areas of expertise in geochemistry include the application of biomarker technology, basin modeling, utilizing micro- and macro-seepage data both onshore and offshore, pyrolysis gas chromatogra...
